The Learning Partnership is pleased to announce the support of Salesforce.org to expand coding in Canadian classrooms through Coding Quest.
Coding Quest is Canada’s largest classroom-based coding program, engaging students in Grades 4–6 from across the country. Developed by The Learning Partnership, the program is available for free to publicly funded school students in English and French, challenging them to apply critical thinking, creativity, problem-solving and science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) skills to design and build their own computer games. The program culminates in an Arcade event, where students showcase their creations.
With the support of Salesforce.org, The Learning Partnership will be able to support Coding Quest in Vancouver, Toronto, Fredericton, Saint John and Halifax in the 2017-18 school year.
